Eat your greens 

Hello Dear Reader,

I love green leafy vegetables and they’re really cheap in season And they have more vitamin C than oranges. I bought all my groceries this week from Aldi including a tiny beef roasting joint that I stopped from shrinking by slow cooking it with some water, salt and pepper in the slow cooker. My fork shows how tiny our meat was.

It just melted when it was cooked and it didn’t shrink and stayed really moist which was important as it wasn’t cheap. We’ll just have a veg based meal tomorrow to offset the cost.

I used some of the beef stock when I mashed the potatoes, especially as we ate far too much butter in Brittany! This was really nice  and surprisingly creamy.

As we’re trying to keep our carbs low we’re not eating a lot of spuds so we’re filling up on greens. It’s a good job we really like them. I wonder, wherever you are, what the ‘greens’ in your country? 

I added some GF bisto granules to a mug full of stock and made some gravy. 

This is end of week one and I think we’ve done ok and we’re definitely eating more healthily, doesn’t seem hard and we’re enjoying it. 

I’ll keep you posted.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx
